After my second round of heart trouble at age 31, I realized that I let too many things get to me.
So I learned to say "[email protected]#% IT!!" and mean it. I don't let things bother me like that any more.
I've learned to take lifes problems and treat them as challenges. I'll stop to analyze them and take what steps are necessary to correct it and move on to the next.

So sometimes you just gotta say [email protected]#% IT! and mean it.

On things related to racing and high-performance:

"If this was easy, we'd all be doing something else."
(Kind of sick, but very true...)

"Racing is the closest thing I know to war." - Roger Penske

"There will always be someone faster. It's up to you to make sure that sooner or later they feel the same way about you, too."

"Never let 'em see you sweat." - Rick Mears

"'Luck' is where opportunity meets preparation."

On life in general:

"The best revenge is living well." (In other words, get over it.)

"The book "100 Things to do Before You Die" is just a starting point."

"Stand by what you believe in. Otherwise, you don't really believe in it."

And finally:

"I'd rather be lucky than good."
Retired! Boating full-time now.

Problems? We don't have problems. What we have are opportunities to excel.

Default The Feeling of life

Everything I do in life, I live the best that I can
To have a beautiful wife and kids and boat with good friends

To hear a good engine is something I like to do
To run in a Poker Run with people like you

Make everyday as perfect as can be
God let me live long enough to own a bigger DONZI!
